You are probably thinking I am color blind because I have called this a green iguana, and it is orange, not green.
The reason is that when green iguanas are in mating season, they turn orange or rust color. The coloration is especially strong in males, and particularly so in alpha males. Iguanas will change their coloration months in advance of mating, and the color may linger for months.
We have new photos of the colonial architecture of Grenada, Nicaragua posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site this week.
